Plotline 1 - Titans Go!
The people hustle-and-bustled through the busy times of afternoon. It was Friday, the end of the work week. Most of the employed workers were dreaming of the weekend, as they flooded back into their buildings from lunch. One such Building was the Miller Tower home of the Mega-corporation called Astrotech. The company was one of the bigger ones in the City, along with King Enterprises. It specialized in "bringing the future to today," or at least that's what their motto was. It seemed everyone who worked their was a well-educated professional. Only the very intellectual or very rich were ever seen inside. Today was one of those days. One could see a myriad of the workers waltzing back into the skyscraper to resume their work. Unfortunately, most of the worker would not be leaving this day.
At exactly 2:00PM, the building's perimeter lit up. Explosives from underground. The foundation of the skyscraper shook for a bit. At first, it looked as if everything was okay. Then, suddenly, the building teetered back-and-forth. A cacophonous chorus composed of the poor, unlucky victims in the building resonated throughout the air. Inside the building it was a frenzy. Some of the workers were frozen in their fearful state. Others were dashing around in a rampage, trying to find a way out. Some we're helping their fellow man, and others kept to themselves only trying to maintain their own, personal survival.
The building began to tip more and more like a deadly take on a swing and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Every minute it bent further, torturing the on-lookers and the victims. Soon, the square skyscraper bent too far and it finally collapsed. Cries filled the air, as the collapsed building landed into other ones, causing a "domino effect" and making some smaller buildings crumble, and as debris and smoke launched into the sky fogging up any good sight of the aftermath.
News helicopters also filled the air, as they began to document the event, but most of their efforts were futile. If they could see, they would spot a slender figure stalking the site in silence, hiding behind the havoc to remain unseen.
Who had done this? What was going on? Why had they done this?
Carmen "Siren" Harper
'Today doesn't see as bad as usual,' Carmen thought to herself as she walked down the paved sidewalks of Rotten City. Carmen almost smiled, which was very difficult for most people living in Rotten City to do. Of course she didn't smile. Why? She was walking down the road, heading towards downtown, when she began to see a plethora of colorful, shrill lights vibrating from downtown. Siren didn't know what exactly was going on. She recognized the smoke, and realized people were screaming so she took her pace up into a sprint, heading towards the site.
It took a minute or two, but she finally made it. By now the building had fallen and most of the people were dead or had evacuated. There were some survivors in need of help however, and Siren began to assist them, doing her best to comfort them, which is difficult to do when you can't talk. She didn't think about the people behind this "terrorist" attack; her mind was on other things. If she had been paying attention however, she would've noticed a shadowy figure slithering around doing something suspicious. The smoke, dust, and chaos made it too difficult to see what he was doing.
